About this product
- DescriptionAre you above average? Is your child an A student? Is your employee an introvert or an extrovert?Every day we are measured against the yardstick of averages, judged according to how closely we come to it or how far we deviate from it.The assumption that metrics comparing us to an average like GPAs, personality test results, and performance review ratings reveal something meaningful about our potential is so ingrained in our consciousness that we don t even question it. That assumption, says Harvard s Todd Rose, is spectacularly and scientifically wrong.InThe End of Average, Rose, a rising star in the new field of the science of the individual shows that one is average. Not you. Not your kids. Not your employees. This isn t hollow sloganeering it s a mathematical fact with ermous practical consequences. But while we kw people learn and develop in distinctive ways, these unique patterns of behaviors are lost in our schools and businesses which have been designed around the mythical average person. This average-size-fits-all model igres our differences and fails at recognizing talent. It s time to change it.Weaving science, history, and his personal experiences as a high school dropout, Rose offers a powerful alternative to understanding individuals through averages: the three principles of individuality. Thejaggedness principle(talent is always jagged), thecontext principle(traits are a myth), and thepathways principle(weallwalk the road less traveled) help us understand our true uniqueness and that of others and how to take full advantage of individuality to gain an edge in life.Read this powerful manifesto in the ranks ofDrive, Quiet, and Mindset and you won t see averages or talent in the same way again.
